Anyone knows the difference between Livorno and Napoli in terms of fit and measurements? Thanks.

Does anyone have an opinion of this jacket worn as a business casual blazer/sport-coat?

 

http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/jackets/havana-navy-plain/C795I.html

 

I tried it on in the store, and the weave was very prominent. Even as a novice, I was immediately surprised at how rough it looked when I saw it from several feet away, and was equally surprised at how rough the fabric felt (I thought it would at least feel soft despite its look). Is this normal for a business-appropriate blazer/sport-coat?

Suit supply cares this much about loyal customers:

I'm not sure if anyone else has posted on this already (I did a search in the forums and didn't see anything come up on the first few of the 3847 pages of results), but I found some previews of Suit Supply's Spring-Summer 2016 collection online from NY Fashion Week here and here

 

Fashion blogger Igee Okafor noted "The only thing I was a bit surprised about was the choice and idea of neutral earth tones for Spring/Summer because it's supposed to be a season full of color." I have to agree. No bright colors here so far. Por Homme explains the rationale: "Drawing inspiration from this, Suitsupply’s ‘Havana Nights’ collection features summer-weight cashmere, silks, and heavy Irish linens in plaid and paisley patterns. The color palette also reflects Havana with olive green, cherry red, and Havana brown."

 

I'm interested to hear your thoughts on the collection.

Here is the full shoot from this past summer.  The blue 3 piece havana and the blue striped madison have already been released.

Looks like a bit of the collection was released during the current Fall/Winter season as a "warm weather selection", aimed at those who live in places where winter doesn't hit very hard, or the southern hemisphere where it's summer right now. These pieces may need to be more like staple pieces, which means they need to be less memorable, therefore less bright colours and more muted tones. S/S 15 had a lot of bright colours and I remember seeing people on here complain about there not being enough staple pieces, so hopefully there'll be a bit more this time.

 

Personally I'm not a huge fan of bright colours; even in summer, and judging by the pictures there's actually quite a lot of suits I'd like to buy, and I've already bought the dark brown Havana 3-piece from their warm weather selection.

Anyone tried on/purchased any of the eveningwear? Thinking about the blue velvet Jort.

I actually like that collection but I can't get past the horrible fits of the jackets. Many of them are too short with too high a buttoning point that throws off the balance. They look terrible.

I know, it makes SuSu look hipster.

US SuSu customer service isn't open yet and I'll be traveling soon, hoping to save by buying overseas, but ................



does anyone remember a post made a while back about the slight differences between US and EU (and possibly asia) in short and long sizes ?

is it definitely true ? i've looked at the size selector and the measurements are the same in both markets, but i could have sworn the post said that possibly the US shorts are cut either a little wider, whereas the EU are cut a little shorter.

Does this apply to regular sizes as well ?

I've been meaning to ask you -- is the back of the 3-piece's vest the standard satin fabric? (The brown suit you bought at the beginning of December). Is it in the same colour palette as the front of the vest? On my 3-piece striped navy suit from last summer it was brown.
post #11145 of 13739
Can I also start a new sub-topic?

What are everyone's top planned SuSu purchases for 2016?

Here are mine:

1. At least one 3-piece suit

2. A couple of standalone vests / waistcoats in normal color palettes, hopefully, as versatile as possible

3. 2-3 round collar shirts from purple or red line

4. One more linen or linen blend summer jacket (I already own many but just can't stop)

5. Maybe 1-2 more 6-button cardigans in brown or navy


I must say my wardrobe is already satiated with SuSu stuff, and I am actually ramping my purchases down in 2016. Nevertheless, I still check up on New Arrivals weekly to stay in the know.
